Braised Carrots

Raw carrots are not popular with my little man at the moment. In an effort to get him to eat more carrots, I have been experimenting with steamed carrots, roasted carrots and braised carrots.

I thought this recipe was pretty darned fantastic!! The little man liked braised carrots better than raw carrots as the sugar helped to sweeten the carrots. I predict more braised carrots in the future as this recipe is a keeper.

3 cups baby carrots (or 1 lb carrots, peeled, cut into wedges)
1 cup chicken broth (I used 1 tsp Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base with 1 cup of water)
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp brown sugar

1. In a medium pot over high heat, add carrots, chicken broth, butter and brown sugar. Stir everything together and bring to a boil.

2. Once it comes to a boil, turn the heat down to medium, cover and simmer until the carrots are tender.
